 Edwin Curley on Spinoza, Enlightenment and Religious Liberty

What can Baruch Spinoza (1632-1677) teach us about how to manage the ferocious divisions of identity, culture, ideology, and faith that riddle our politics today? Join us for a public lecture by world-renowned philosopher, Edwin Curley, Emeritus Professor at the University of Michigan.

Edwin Curley is an Emeritus Professor of Philosophy at the University of Michigan, and one of the world’s foremost experts on the life and thought of Spinoza. He has just recently published the second volume of a complete translation of Spinoza’s works with Princeton University Press.

This is a public lecture event, with free entrance, supported by the Centre for Ethics, Philosophy, and Public Affairs (CEPPA), at the University of St Andrews, as well as by the Royal Institute of Philosophy.

Spaces are limited so do book a ticket in advance.

This event is organised by Alexander Douglas (Philosophy, St Andrews) & Adam Etinson (Philosophy, St Andrews).

This event is in the Brockway Room on the ground floor. For accessibility info:
